Memorial Day offers the perfect excuse to dust off the grill, get the yard in shape or load up the car for a weekend trip — provided you haven’t already been doing that over these last few days of warm, sunny weather. It’s also, at heart, a celebration of America’s veterans, so don’t forget about the commemorative events, both solemn and celebratory, amid the barbecues, parades and concerts. Here’s a sampling of some of the biggest and best events along the Front Range for this three-day weekend, which marks the unofficial start of summer. Veterans Memorial Day Tribute When: May 25 Where: 1340 Sherman St. in Denver This tribute at POF Hall, just a half-block south of the State Capitol, was founded two decades ago to honor Colorado’s fallen heroes. The free, 20th annual event, which runs 10 a.m.-noon, will feature a musical ensemble with bagpipes, hand bells and singers, a Reading of Names, the U.S. Navy Bell Toll, a Remembrance Wreath laying for heroes who have died in past wars (placed by veteran representatives), and presentations of signature tribute banners and pins to Gold Star families. denver.org  Denver Day of Rock When: May 25 Where: 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver Skyline Park and nearby locations downtown will host the annual Denver Day of Rock, a free, multi-stage music festival that turns the 16th Street Mall into an all-day party on behalf of Amp the Cause — a nonprofit benefiting more than two dozen children’s charities. The 2019 lineup features two dozen acts on five stages, including headliners Eli Young Band, Barns Courtney, Austin Young Band, Wild Belle and Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers.
